Connected Speech - Australian English versionConnected Speech Australian Version is an interactive multimedia program designed for ESL / EFL learners who want to improve the effectiveness of their spoken communication in Australian-English.

There is a growing recognition of the need for explicit pronunciation teaching for English language learners and Connected Speech is the answer.

Three Levels of English

Connected Speech includes three levels of English language from lower intermediate to advanced English, on the one CD.

This is the Australian-English version and is suitable for all ESL students and schools in Australia and Asia Pacific.

There are also Northern American or British English versions of Connected Speech. If you require information on these, please contact us.

Speaking and Being Understood

Connected Speech changes your intonation so your speech sounds much more natural to an English speaker.

This program focuses on the 'song' of English - how we link words, word and sentence stress, how and where we change pitch and how and where we pause. If you can do that, you will sound more natural and much easier to understand. Not only will your words be understood, so will your meaning.

How is Connected Speech different from other Pronunciation Resources?

  • It is based on the natural, informal and unscripted speech that English language learners are exposed to in everyday life.

  • Learners are provided with clear, context-specific visual and auditory feedback on their spoken production. This is unlike most other pronunciation programs where the onus for interpretation is placed on the learner.

  • It provides a comprehensive approach to teaching and learning the essential skills required for the ESL learner to clearly and effectively express themselves and to more easily comprehend spoken English.

  • And finally, for the first time learners see how the theoretical aspects of pronunciation are applied to natural spoken language.
